Risk of nurses leaving too high to mandate vaccine, says Ballad Health CEO

"We have about 6,000 nurses in our system," Alan Levine, executive chair, president and CEO of Johnson City, Tenn.-based Ballad Health, told NPR. "If we are five or 10 nurses down in our system, we feel it. ... I have to keep as many nurses as I can who are capable of taking care of our community."

Mr. Levine's concerns about staff quitting because of vaccine requirements are substantiated; Lewis County Health System, a single-hospital system in Lowville, N.Y., said it will temporarily close its maternity unit after staff resigned over the state mandate. In South Carolina, Tidelands Health fired one of its employees for not complying with the Georgetown-based system's vaccine mandate. Among the most recent examples: After a two-week unpaid suspension period ending Sept. 14, 125 employees at IU Health left the Indianapolis-based organization after choosing not to receive the vaccine... 


Was just sent this email:  165 jobs for northern light health in Maine on the Handshake job board right now. Which makes me think they are being tough now but will be crying soon.

Northern Lights Health Care has a bunch of adverts up for nurses on the “handshake” job board. Looking for fresh meat right out of the university to replace the critical thinkers that won’t take a knee. Funny, they don’t go into detail about the shortage of nurses in this bogus article.

2 German pathology profs examined 10 diseased after the jab. 5 "very likely" killed by vax. 2 "likely". 3 "need further examination". They found lymphocytes everywhere. "Auto-immune response". They say one needs to think about stopping the vax campaign. (they are working on an english translation).

It amazes me that the general public hasn't noticed who is 100% for vaccines vs. who is hesitant.

I see academics, teachers unions, politicians, and other Ivory Tower folk pushing it hard.

I see first responders, doctors, nurses, and others who have been on the front lines the whole time as the ones objecting.

With the regular influenza vaccine having a ~30% success rate, I don't understand why so many people think vaccines will get us out of this mess.

BTW, that YouTube link is dead. The censorship police killed it:
